Churchfields Flowerbed Competition

It’s that time of year again for the budding young designers in Elmbridge to get their thinking caps on!

After the creativity and enthusiasm shown by the young entrants last year, Elmbridge’s Green Spaces Team is pleased to announce the theme for this year’s ‘Design a Flowerbed competition’ open to primary school age children.

2014 is the anniversary of the beginning of the World War I and, as part of the commemorations, young designers are asked to take inspiration from the first verse of Charlotte Mew’s poem, “May 1915” to create their design:  “Let us remember spring will come again”.

The winning design will be planted in Churchfields Recreation Ground late spring, so the winner will be able to see their design blooming over the summer months.  This is a great opportunity for young designers to display their awareness of this important part of history and how relevant it is to the community.

The flowerbed is a 3m wide circle. Young participants should think about colours, patterns and shapes when designing their flowerbed. Simple flowerbed designs are often the best.

The design should be on A4 paper and marked overleaf with the participant’s name, age and address. Send all designs to
